To The Bone
On 14 July NETFLIX released its latest original film, To the Bone. This film focuses on a young girl’s struggle with anorexia nervosa and there are concerns that it may glamorise and act as a ‘how-to’ guide to eating disorder behaviours. It may also act as a potential trigger to young people already at risk of developing the eating disorders included in To the Bone. As such Santa Maria College have put together a list of useful resources for parents to consult when talking to their daughters about the content of the film.
